Hi Y'all!



This is a spin-off to the guys' thread. I just wanted to find out where y'all ladies buy your suits.



Maybe we can all discuss places to buy reasonably priced yet classy/sexy suits.



Please feel free to chime in abt shoes, make up & all the 'nonovities" LOL ... that go with good suits.



Also for interviews do u throw in a lil side ponytail, all hair down. half up-half down?? And yes I know it all has to do with face shape but assuming u have the perfect oval shape ...what do u suggest?



The boys here have 3 big pages abt what to wear...SO LETS GO LADIES!!

Sorry you're not getting any feedback.  I generally shop Nordstroms or Pendleton for work clothes.  I'm very conservative but classy.  I've seen things in Talbots that seemed reasonably priced, but I think you could also shop most of the department store sales and look for good classic looks that are marked down.  I'm not much help -- I hate shopping & will go about every three years and buy everything I need all at once. 

 
Everything is conservative -- jewelry, shoes, make-up. 
 
As to hair -- forget the side ponytail.  Don't do ANYTHING that is cute!  You want a classic attractive style.  Look at the hair and dress of the women "attorneys" on shows like Law & Order.  That's the look to go for in interviews. 
 
You also can "scope" out an office before you interview and get a feel for how people dress.  Always dress "up" for an interview. 
 
Remember you are trying to convince people you should manage their life savings.  Good luck!

Thanks Old Lady...I am looking for a new job & I'll be working in Canada. I know of one very good but expensive women's suits store called "Carrere" .There is a Talbots in Canada so I'll check it out. And yeah I have to cut down on my cutesy-sexy look & go conservative.



Yes those women attorneys dress well FOR THE MOST PART, but I've seen them in super short skirts & I wonder if anyone can ever pull off the super short skirt in real life.



Thanks again!

You don't need a suit to work at Tim Horton's, do you?  I think they give you a neat polyester uniform.

If you are younger and slimmer, check out Tahari. If you have a few extra $$ and want HNW clients check out MaxMara. If you are 40+ check out Valentino. Find a brand that works for you and who's Technical Designers ensure a consistent fit. Talbot's TDs used to be excellent. The look is a little stodgy for my taste (I am a man, but I started my career in fashion).

Go with Anne Taylor.. That is where I shop!

 
I don't know why I am even posting because I know you are BJQ and MRS.OBAMA..  So this is basically a waste of my time.
